Two Wheels Are Two Wheels…

This post I stumbled on Facebook ticked me, it really shows the state of the country that I refuse to say at this time. This post is being clamored by the Philippine netizens at the moment, it basically shows that the bike lane is not being used to its full potential which is sad.
Here’s my suggestion on how to properly use the bike lane, which is more in tune with common sense rather than government idiocy.  
If the traffic is in complete gridlock, the rider/biker has the option to use the bike line and ride at a similar speed/follow the flow as the cyclists. Basic common sense, not bureaucratic nonsense.
It is built to cater to anything on two wheels especially when the traffic is bumper-to-bumper. The motorcycle must leave the bike lane once the general traffic flows once again and/or the average flow of traffic exceeds the speed of the average cyclist.
Or the bike lane is just a wasted space if it’s not being utilized to its maximum purpose.
The UK does it, it’s normal in mainland Europe, and it’s been pretty safe and prudent so far.
If not, what’s the point of owning a motorcycle in PH in the first place!?
….oh the Philippine government (esp. Dick Gordon) wants to ban motorcycles.

Starting From March 3 Onwards, All My Youtube Videos Will Have Subtitles With More Than 20+ Languages!!!

Since my 2 week break last month, I’ve been brainstorming on what to do with my videos and/or social media from 2021 and on. I realized that I have fans from all over the globe, from Brazil, Malaysia, Vietnam, and even in some African countries!!! Some of my Filipino fans are frustrated that I don’t/refuse to speak Tagalog/Filipino on my review videos (whether on YT or FB). I kept on telling them that my channel is NOT a Filipino-centric channel but more of a global channel.

So I figure out to connect more people worldwide, I might as well go all out and provide subtitles! And not just a meager 2, 3, or even 5 languages…make that MORE THAN 20 LANGUAGES!!! With that in mind, here are the languages that I will be including:

  • Amharic
  • Afrikaans
  • Arabic
  • Chinese (simplified, Taiwan)
  • Chinese (traditional, China)
  • English (American)
  • Filipino / Tagalog
  • French
  • German
  • Hebrew
  • Hindi
  • Indonesian
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Latin
  • Malay
  • Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Spanish
  • Swahili
  • Swedish
  • Thai
  • Vietnamese

Yeah, yeah, yeah, none of the Google-based translations are perfect. But it’s still a small step, right!?

More videos will be subtitled in due time. As of this article, The 2020 Honda CB650R Taste Test and the upcoming 2020 Moto Guzzi V9 Sport Bobber Taste Test are already subtitle-ready!

I will also provide subtitles on Facebook when possible, but I think they’re limited up to 5 languages at a time. Also since my Facebook page is more Filipino-centric compared to my Youtube platform, it will be an Asian-centric affair. So over there, I will provide:

  • Filipino / Tagalog
  • Hindi
  • Indonesian
  • Japanese*
  • Korean*
  • Malay
  • Spanish*
  • Thai
  • Vietnamese

*If Facebook can accommodate more languages

And if other video platforms would provide the same flexibility as Youtube, then I will implement the same concept.
